In July 1952, EC Comics debuted a new comic: Mad! Filled with anthological stories from multiple genres with a silly bent, it eventually morphed into a satire magazine, rather than comic book and became the only surviving EC comic in just a few more years. One story is horror, one is crime, one is western, one is science fiction.
I thought the sci-fi story “Blobs” was kind of fun, since it is basically the premise of the story Pixar movie “Wall-E” (the future of the human race is that we will all be machine-bound slugs who cannot function on our own).
I _loved_ Mad Magazine as a kid, but never really got the nostalgia of the Mad comic books until now. This was fun!
